KidSource OnLine Book Review

This book is an excellent resource for parents of young children. In it you'll find everything you need to know about basic care, child-development and preventative care guidelines. This book also covers a broader range of medical and emergency topics than other parenting/infant books. The section on Emergencies is well-developed and will be very valuable, should parents ever need it. Overall, this book is very well written and should be considered by all parents.
